"who the hell drops in to ask that?" lol.
but since i commented, i might as well respond to OP.
My daughter is only 10 months old. Before i had her, i watched 2 kids. from 10-11 months till 3 yrs for the girl and 4-8 years for the boy. i've also seen a lot of kids with behavioral issues. 99.99% of the time it's from emotional issues that ABUSING a 4 yr old with hot sauce is just going to make it worse IMO. Not saying i'd use it at that point either but i couldn't see doing it on a child younger than 10 or 11. you know, old enough to comprehend what's going on with him.
as for suggestions, they're right with parenting classes, what could it hurt? you want advice and help but feel you're not getting it here. try the one piece of advice that would DEFINITELY provide you with suggestions. a parent class will help train you in more productive ways of parenting.

Were you given hot sauce as a kid? My mom did it ONE time after I ran around the house swearing and it f**king hurts. I was older than 4 at the time to so I can only imagine how it feels for that poor boy. Even though the sting went away after a little bit, my mouth was sore and my taste was off for the rest of the day. Also, to this day I can't stand hot sauce.
I'm an adult and have no tolerance for spicy foods...so hot sauce in my mouth would be seriously painful, and I would not inflict that on anyone else, let alone a child.
